Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Scripps Health full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

nice CNA's. They are overworked but really know their job and do it without attitude. They are always there when you need them. Even when the patient's treat them like dirt the CNA apologizes for imagined wrongdoings.

Cons

Bad management. The nurses are the lowest of the low while the patient's have all the power. No support, you are on your own. It takes a long time to chart on every patient because they want every little thing charted. The system was obviously not created by a working nurse in the field because it is such a poor system.

Advice to Management

Get a nurse to run things and get rid of the crazy charting system. The CEO, Chris Van Gorder, is not a god.

    I have been working at Scripps Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    i have met some really nice people that work their. At a few of the hospitals the doctors are good and helpful. Short drive from my house, and provides me with a paycheck.

    Cons

    Paper charting dates back 10 years, the computer charting portion of the assessment is outdated software when its not frozen its redundant and no one ever looks at it anyways (waste of time) . The system pays out millions of dollars in bonuses they should use that money to update their charting system. Medication scanning has proven to save millions of lives why does scripps not pay the CEO his bonus one year and update their system. The doctors notes are on paper as well as the orders, takes twice as long to read the chicken scratch. Doctors can be very difficult to get ahold of. Pay is on the low end of the spectrum for southern california systems.

    Advice to Management

    INVEST IN COMPUTER CHARTING IT SAVES LIVES. Withhold a few million dollars in bonuses in 2013 and UPDATE THE CHARTING SYSTEM. If you could use a calculator to prevent errors and do math why not use it, get with the times.
